My Epson SX218 does not seem to be reliably recognised.
I have installed the correct drivers from the Epson website.
I have edited the
/etc/sane.d/dll.conf file to contain the uncommented line – epkowa .
I have edited
/lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules in accordance with the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingScannerPermissions .
I have ensured that the 2 users on the system are members of the scanner and saned groups.
When I click on the
iscan icon on the launcher, the icon fades and brightens unless I double click and then I get a dialogue box up that says Epson (unknown model)[
epkowa:usb:003:006]. I then get a dialogue that says could not send command to scanner – check scanner status.
SOMETIMES though the dialogue recognises the scanner as Epson Stylus NX220/SX218/TX220/ME – when I click "OK" then
iscan starts up and the scanner works perfectly.
does not find the scanner either as a user or as
What is going wrong?
